The Toothwood Fern also known as the Narrow Buckler is a triangularly shaped fern with tiny leaflets that resemble teeth on each leaf. It is bright, vibrant, and green in color with a lacy appearance. The plant is often used as an accent border or background to cover grounds. It can also be used to maintain and prevent soil erosion from heavy rains when planted under the eave of a home. The plant can also be used in a flower pot or as an excellent centerpiece for a table.
This evergreen grows between two and three feet tall, and between two and three feet wide. It is often planted alongside spring flowers or in areas somewhat lacking in sunlight. This spring plant often forms hybrids with other ferns when it drops its spores. Its deep, cool color serves as an excellent background for any number of colorful blooms one may be keen to plant.
